Glasgow has long had a reputation as a tough city, where men of steel work long, physical hours down at the shipyards and enjoy a few pints and maybe a scrap in the pub afterwards. But this reputation as Edinburgh’s less-cultured and more thuggish bigger brother is one that should be firmly consigned to the dustbin.
Some may argue that it was Glasgow being European City of Culture in 1990 that kickstarted the renaissance that the city has experienced over the last three decades, others might argue that it was Irvine Welsh’s seminal novel, Trainspotting, written in the local dialect, known as Glasgow Patter, and Danny Boyle’s genre-defining, adrenaline-fuelled film that were more responsible for bringing Glasgow back into the limelight.
Glasgow has well and truly shrugged off its reputation as a rough city and assumed the mantle of a genteel and cultured place to live. Here, we look at 5 good reasons why you should consider calling this famous old city home.
Edinburgh, like San Francisco, Amsterdam and Barcelona, is one of those cities that you always feel you should walk, or at least cycle, around. For smallish cities, public transportation throws up an unusual question: do we really need it? And if so, what kind? The answer is often the same - trams.
